I have owned a total of 4 3DS systems. A 3DS,2DS,New 3DS XL, and New 3DS Pokémon edition. My OG 3DS wouldn't work anymore, I got the 2DS just to hold over for the New 3DS, I got the New 3DS XL because the New 3DS wouldn't come out in North America, Then I snatched the New 3DS Pokémon Red and Blue edition. I don't have the OG 3DS or XL anymore. So in terms of 3DS hardware, I had a weird experience.
